The Pittsburgh Pirates have reached an agreement on a three-year deal with catcher Ryan Doumit that will take him through his salary arbitration years, a baseball source told ESPN.com.

ESPN Doumit is often injured, and as a result this deal is as much about security than anything. In 2008 Doumit was worth about 3 WAR. If we assume he can stay healthy and play near that level over the next three years he projects to be worth 3/30. Odds are, the Pirates are going to be paying him quite a bit less, which makes this a pretty nice coup if he does indeed stay healthy.
